Next week in school

Monday 30 January -NATIONAL STORYTELLING WEEK

  • (30 January - 6 February) A great excuse to terrify the kiddywinkles with terrible tales from Roald Dahl, or the brothers Grimm. Read the traditional story of the Wolf of Gubbio in this resource from dsoggiu

Tuesday 31 January -DOSVEDENYA MCDONALD’S

  • (1990) The first McDonald’s opens in the Soviet Union – in Moscow – not only heralding fast food but neon lights. Queues almost rivalled those to see ‘dead Len’ in Red Square. This resource from Menana takes you through ‘Goodbye Lenin’ in German!

February

Wednesday 1 February -NATIONAL HEART MONTH

  • (1 - 27 February) The British Heart Foundation’s fundraising and educational month. Convince children they not only have hearts – they need to keep them healthy. See this cut-out-and-keep resource from Kritur

Thursday 2 February -GROUNDHOG DAY …and WORLD WETLANDS DAY

  • In Nova Scotia crowds will gather in a wildlife park to wait for the appearance of Shubenacadie Sam, and debate whether or not they can see his shadow. Closer to home it’s World Wetlands Day. Follow this link to learn more about biodiversity

Friday 3 February -SO YOU THINK YOU CAN ADD?

  • Take the Lasco Maths Challenge – open to all primary schools – and find out. Counting fingers and toes not allowed. See this resource from Lascomaths

Saturday 4 February -UNICEF DAY FOR CHANGE

  • This year’s theme is Sport for Development in Uganda with the charity raising funds to help change lives. Get a free education and fund-raising pack from this resource put together by theTES Resources Team

Sunday 5 February -BRAMLEY APPLE WEEK

  • Do kids still bring apples for the teacher? Why not encourage them to bring apple pie. Bramleys are grown only in Britain – which seems good enough reason to celebrate. Visit this site for a host of fab recipes
